Lineage FLAC->DAW(Bertha)->SHN/CDA
Transferred by Bertha Remaster of the patched master reel source


Patch source: UNK.AUD->CASS->???->DAT->WAV->FLAC - Sound D

- Digitally remastered using a custom built, Dual - DAW, nicknamed Bertha, by
- Completed on December 12, 2004.
- Source used 26933 via Tol, by Chris Ladner.
- Light Digital Noise Reduction was found with Spectral Analysis prior to Bertha Remastering.
- The same DNR was found on source 12657, which is the source Chris used for 26933.
- It is not known who applied the noise reduction, but they did a decent job, producing no audible artifacts.
- The noise reduction had only minor effects on the remastering process.
- Spectral Analysis also shows three different fingerprints for the soundboard portion.
- This would tend to indicate that the soundboard portion did not all come from the same source.
- The AUD patches are pretty rough. I considered removing them, but decided to leave them in.
- As the AuD portions transition back into the board, one gets a pretty good feel for the quality of this 72 board.
- The soundboard mix is all over the place at the start.
- No vocals on d1t02 until 5:47. It takes a couple tracks to settle in.
- Strangely, the channels were swapped towards the beginning of The Other One and I swapped them back.
- There are lots of small digiblips throughout. These were, most likely, caused during the transfer.
- I removed Between 40 and 50 of them by editing individual samples.
- In addition, a few fade - out/ins were added to clean up transitions.
- There is some very sweet sounding early 72 bass in this one.
- Enjoy!

I have been stuck in 77, recently dabbling in 72, this is yummy with chips. Its so much fun to stumble on to these wonderful shows. My kids get a little freaked out when Im singing away like I was 20 again. Thank You Grateful Dead , Thank You Internet Archives, Thank You LOC.

Subject: One of My top 5.... and my fave ever Greatest Story.
Always has been. Perfect renditions of some classics. Had this tape from very early on, and this show had such power. I found it captivating.

Top moments are the Phil solo into Other One with a great rolling bomb. Followed by several minutes of just absolutely blistering jamming. Very powerful stuff. And yes my favorite Greatest Story.

Bertha Remaster is topnotch. It's the bass. WOW>

Pay no attention to disgruntled frontal part. Hunker down and endure for what comes forth is the mighty seedling cracking up through the concrete.

Jerry's Strat is immaculate in tone and from every which way. Easily the dude clearly nails 27 different tonal qualities and effects together into a fence of mail.

Bobby's beautiful rhythm is high in the mix and it is real. Keith lays it down so fine that the rest of the crew just forget all about themselves, y'know, and just get on down dat boogie. Billy is coaxing them on, commanding that they play.

Yes, Jerry and Bobby and Phil and Billy and Keith and Donna and, in spirit, Blue Ron.

This is the perfect complement, the absolute bookend of two brilliant performances and fortunately enough for us, folks like Jay and the Archives have provided us with an enriching experience, captured for eternity (we hope).

I think I'm going to send the Archives some dough.
